TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation


A K-Ar date of about 0.59 +/- 0.25 Ma was obtained from Huambutillo volcano at the eastern end of the Cuzco valley about 20 km SE of Cuzco. Nearby Rumicola volcano was dated at about 7.2 Ma, but this was considered to be in error, and the volcano to be of likely Quaternary age (Bonhomme et al., 1988).
